So enjoy it. Sure, but most of all, thank you for listening to The Truth Podcast Network. This is good Truth Network and a and and and radio show.

There day on the Christian card I show how long will we get there anyone who's ever been on a long trip with kids or maybe when you're a kid and serve those over thousand times when we get there. My bed still.

Jim is worse them when you get there.

Will get there when we get there. So after that they show I'm hoping God will teach all of us exactly what to do when we hear this phrase either in our hearts or in the car with your kids have ever that works.

So in the intro. You may have heard something you'd never heard before in Christian front Christian radio that was gorilla funk monster that was singing my GP could smile. It was it was guerrilla funk monster.

How long till we get there, and later on, you heard Allie Roger singing.

How long till we get there in a course Graham Kendrick states shine, Jesus, shine, who could forget that song and it all comes together to understand all that shortly what I had put those together. So today show is here recently we've always done is brought to by the Hebrew letter like in Sesame Street tonight got a have a letter that you brought to you brings you this shows that today's show is brought to Bobby Hebrew U hood and you may know that the unit is just a little. It's the smallest of letters is just adopt and that.is the little that means a lot. It's actually the spark of God and so we're in its beginning in Jesus's name, by the way its first letter in the word Jesus is a good so when you hear that you have show that's that.

You know that your picture here and so the last segment I need to tell you there's really here's a spoiler alert. The last segment today show is Christian card I theater episode 16 write programs progress and I might give you further spoiler alert didn't. It features my 12-year-old granddaughter Lila is the voice of piety, but I do have to so many when you listen to the episode in the four segment today. I know you and enjoy this so Lila had come in. My 12-year-old daughter, and as you might know I get to write these lines for the episodes and essentially I'm just plagiarizing Pilgrim's progress and I just take what John Bunyan wrote and just put it into this format for Christian card I theater and so one of tidies lines was talking about how Jesus takes people just ordinary people and turns them into princes in the they were born in in a lower place as well. One of the things words that that John Bunyan used was they were born in the dunghill, which for 12-year-old little girl. She doesn't very familiar with the term dunghill and so as I was trying to explain to her I said Lila when you're famous line you have to realize that back in those days there were a lot of horses and those horses they left some exhaust all over the road and so they had to scoop up that stuff and I put it in a hill okay and that was a dunghill.

And so, wait till you hear her deliver the line because we laughed all the way home, talking about people that were born in the dunghill so he got to come up in the last the very last segment is absolutely hilarious. So for me I just never cease to be amazed at the sense of humor that Jesus has a meaning. His sense of humor. Is it and he especially likes to play with me. So Monday as I was spending time with Jesus our little ask him where he wanted to go this week. You know what what is it that that where we could go, what adventures could we do, and I heard them say what I felt like you said was he wanted me to memorize the 13 song. The 13th song and so you know I don't know about you but that I didn't have any idea what that Psalm was my immediate thought was boy hope it's not a long one right because every residence is to do.

I'm open is not a long song and I am literally still laughing because he must've known that was good to be my thought because you know it, the first words of the 13s all more. How long you can't make this stuff up is true, absolutely true. So you remember those long rides as a kid when we may get their daddy, you know for the thousandth time and ends nice to know actually in King David's time.

They suffered with the same malady. I mean clearly God the father knows where were headed and as David was saying how long till we get there. Essentially, how long well it would really take me an hour to explain all the reasons why you know God wanted me to memorize the 13 Psalm but where I was striving to do was in the 16th Psalm which we we talked about a few shows ago in a David said I place the Lord always before me and so I have been striving, striving in order to get that done to place. Lord always before me. And as I've been striving. Apparently Jesus knew what I needed.

The answer for my striving, and how long till I get there. How long till I get there. How long till I get there was a 13 Psalm because in the 13 Psalm we see that David put the weight of the problem on God rather than on himself. In other words, when you listen to this song minimum to redo the verses here. Second but think about was who David is put in the. The pressure on you know he's not putting the pressure on himself to place God always before me is putting the pressure on Jesus. The reasons how long will you forget me oh Lord forever. How long will you hide your face from you.

How long will I take counsel in my soul that's a beautiful line right because he doesn't say how long you know what he's talking about is if I'm listening to my own voice I'm in trouble here so how long will I take counsel in my own soul having sorrow in my heart daily.

How long shall my enemy be exalted overnight.

Now, as you it's only got six verses so it didn't take me does the whole of the memorize it, but I do want to get to the end of the Psalm because it has to do with the show today so the last line after David goes through this idea of how long he says I will sing on the Lord because he stepped bountifully he is dealt bountifully with me.

In other words, here's David solution to how long till we get there and it is to sing okay sings specifically to the Lord shine, Jesus, shine in the whole 13 Psalm by the way you shine, Jesus, shine. I think if you read it and spend some time there, you can see that that's the idea.

Now remember in all about you but I know my mother was the had magic of making a long car trip short because she would begin to sing the songs and I don't know what your favorite was, but that's what we want today. He wants to call in and share 866-34-TRUTH 87884. What was the song that made your long trip short or was it I've been working on the railroad map. My mother used to love that one or shall become around the mountain when she comes. Remember that she'll be riding six letters all used to love to sing that and actually my granddaughter Lila. She had memorize.

We we worked on on the good ship lollipop and we even did some of the lines ourselves.

Me Lila one time took a trip to Tennessee together and she had a dog she has adopted the state named Jake so you know that line in the good ship lollipop. Are you a low awake with a tummy ache. Will we change that you will awake with a dog named Jake.

I know that there was a song or two songs or three songs, it was your favorite that major long trip shorter and we would love to hear it today, 866348788486634 I have to tell you that one of my favorite stories involve my granddaughter and my father and that we had driven, I think is so cool. My father was 86 years old at this time he was 86 years old and we had driven from North Carolina to Colorado on the way back. It was late at night and we been driving driving driving driving and Lila says we start need to sing songs all my father.

I had not heard them sing sincere kids and he was sitting in and out shall become around the mountain you know is he was clapping and singing them, you know. Here he was 86 years old. Made the trip so short because she was coming around the mountain you call us at 8663 foray 7884 main and and praying that we can all think that next time that I'm thinking, how long till I get there that while King David saying under those circumstances, and what did he sitting in the in no doubt it had everything to do with today's letter you write because I don't. As we talked about beginning a show the U. It is the little that means a lot. It's the beginning of the word Israel at the beginning award you show a very importantly, and you hope it's little bitty spark. That's the kind that got sparked and you might not be surprised to find it is the second letter of the word sink the first letter of the word saying is the second letter of Jesus's name, which is his shin so it's kind interesting that Jesus's name spelled forward would be you would shin and Jesus is first two letters go backwards with the first beginning of the word sing and has everything to do.

It has everything to do with God's presence and wow if you sense his presence along Triplett way to go.

So I am so excited this people are calling them of their favorite song from you know their youth or where even now with their kids on what makes your long trip shorter and we got Virginia is in North Carolina, not Virginia. Then she made up a child in the song as a child's originator on the Christian progression of the morning so man were all dying to know about your song Virginia are you there okay 100 don't worry about the speaker.

Love is something I gotta get to because it had so many requests you might know a good Christian car guy so we have the Jesus labor love which is car repair labor for single moms widows and families in crisis and often as we try to repair these cars. We do not have the funds actually to get them to the point where they need to be, or is that necessarily good financial decision. It's actually a better financial decision to go ahead and get a car for them and a lot of people donate cars you know that they would've otherwise traded in the you know cars that are to $3000 value whenever they bit the cars that that that are like that.

Well I got Scott back on the line and Scott deals with these folks every time I thought it would be good for me to hear from the actual volunteers talking to the applicants now days. Scott is with me. Scott Barton and Scott so you can you share a story or two of these people in the needs that they have for these cars probably go all art up.box people that I've talked with their cars were such bad shape that we had the car donation.

Wait usually get out five people ahead of you will not two people, a lady and a gentleman that we were miracles every day and both of called me back within a week, and that that they hurt or something God provides, in that that's always been to me. How awesome is it that we get a chance to pray with these funds but really got about a minute left is to share some of the needs we have in the town specifically where we need when we need people to donate cars well.

We're always looking for our weekly one diaper to get them ready and I would just encourage anybody to partner with it, but there are everything so I'm sure we've got needs in Winston-Salem, Greensboro area and we got needs in the Raleigh area is another one in Richmond. We have needs up there I'm not any in the Richmond area but down in the Eastern Arctic state that a few people but mainly triangle Raleigh Durham outer life is warm and Christian car guy.com to go ahead and and and let us know if you got a car, maybe no somebody or we can pray or just you know as you see the deeds you could be praying for the Jesus labor leavening that's all that stuff. That's what makes it all happen.

When they'd made ready.

They sat down the meat table and with wine that was refined themselves. The Lord of the hill. Do you know why he had his house at the top of this hill of difficulty.
